Regular readers know I’m fascinated by well-designed art walls and shelves with frames. And one of the things I’ve discovered makes them interesting is when the art is both leaning and hanging, much like the small vignette below from Better Homes and Gardens.
This technique works great for displaying family photos and Pottery Barn is great at it.
Check out the example below:
By hanging art to the left of the credenza below, Room & Board expanded the art collage that starts with the mirror and frames that are leaning.
Hanging and leaning art means it’s easier to create different levels and tuck in smaller pieces.
This technique works well in the two groupings below as well.
I particularly like the wide, frame tucked above left below the second shelf. It fills in the space perfectly. Both the photos above are from BHG.
Do you use this technique?
